There is no evidence of a rebellion in the Bogazliyan [Boğazliyan] county. All of the Armenian villages that are part of the county, could be said to have been completely cleared out by the County Executive and Directors of the township. The children of the Armenian families in the villages haven’t been able to even step out in front of their homes, much less actually go out into the villages. As a result of the disturbing situation, there has been horrible looting of Armenian villages by the gendarmerie, Circassian officers and Muslim community. The harm to the state treasury as a result of this has been reported by the army unit Commander’s office.

A presentation of the copies of the telegrams sent from the central office of Kayseri by Kayseri Division Commander Colonel Shahap [Şahap] Bey in July 1915, to Colonel Halil Recai Bey.

A presentation of the coded telegram that had been sent by Kayseri Division Commander Colonel Shahabettin [Şahabettin] Bey in 1918 and which the original or copy is to be taken from the Fifth Army Corps.

A presentation of the warrant that had been issued by the Office of the Court Executive on Hamparsum Efendi, a Member of the Yozgat Appellate Court and the fact that the aformentioned had been deported.

The Armenians of Yozgat are being deported and Hamparsum Efendi, a member of the Court, was also relieved of his duties for this reason, and as a result the Court council is short staffed. In order to prevent court matters from being delayed, all that is necessary must be done.

During the deportation, Hamparsum Efendi had fallen ill and for this reason he remained behind in his home. Discussion over whether he will be allowed to return to work if he recovers his health.

Since it has been determined that Hamparsum, the Yozgat appellete court member, and Bogos and Mihran Efendi, who are members of the Lower Court, are all to be deported, whatever is necessary must be done in furtherance of this.

In the file of Hamparsum Efendi, a member of the Yozgat Appellate Court, there is no letter or telegram about his being deported along with the other Armenians of Yozgat. However, copies of the letters and telegrams sent by the local appellete public prosecutor's office and the Ankara Governor's Ministry were presented.

There are no documents worthy of registration however, there are sixteen separate telegrams between Shahap [Şahap] Bey and the Army Corps Commander's Office and the County Executive's office of Bogazlian [Boğazlıyan] which were obtained from the Division and the copies were presented.

[Consists of a recitation of some of the information gleaned from some records related to the deportation from Ankara and Yozgat,with bits of commentary added here and there.]
